The Lyrics

On November 6, 2013, Blockbuster announced that it would stop and eject for good. I have such nostalgia for video stores of the VHS era.
I watched Wayne’s World on VHS back in ‘92
We rented Halloween so many times, it’s true!
We’d stay at Blockbuster until the grass was blue
Oh-a oh

Please note Blockbuster had the opportunity
To purchase Netflix and the rest is history
It’s such a tragic case of hindsight irony
Oh-a oh
It’s such a blue day
Oh-a oh
Sun casts a blue ray

Net and Red killed the video store
Flix and Box killed the video store
Fam’ly Vid-yo’s going strong
Oh-a-a-a oh

We rented NES and horror videos
The shitty playback, it don’t seem so long ago
And you remember… the trailers used to go
“In a world…”
“Why drive a mile?”
Oh-a oh
“Download the file”

Net and Red killed the video store
Net and Red killed the video store
No more driving in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh

(Interlude)

Net and Red killed the video store
Net and Red killed the video store
Fam’ly vid-yo’s going strong
It grows each day like Donkey Kong
PC’s, phones and DVR’s?
I’m glad I kept my VCR!

Ahh, where are the video stores?
Ahh, where are the video stores?

Net and Red killed the video store
Flix and Box killed the video store
Net and Red killed the video store
Flix and Box killed the video store
Net and Red killed the video store
(Ahh, where are the video stores?)
Net and Red killed the video store
Net and Red killed the video store
(Ahh, where are the video stores?)
Net and Red killed the video store
(Repeat and fade out)

(Fade back in with somber outro)

Oh-a oh
Oh-a oh
Oh-a oh

(Fade out one last time)
